 HUY Humberside Airport Info & Guide

Humberside AirportWhere is Humberside Airport?
Humberside Airport (IATA: HUY, ICAO: EGNJ) is situated at Kirmington in the Borough of North Lincolnshire, England, 10 NM (19 km; 12 mi) west of Grimsby and around 15 mi (24 km) from both Kingston upon Hull and Scunthorpe, on the A18. It is a small international airport, owned by the Manchester Airports Group (MAG), the largest UK-owned airport group, acquiring Humberside Airport in 1999. In 2008, MAG announced that it was conducting a review of their strategy for Humberside Airport, and all options including disposal were under consideration. In December 2008, MAG announced they intend to retain Humberside Airport, due to a number of investments, such as the new £1.6 million perishables hub. There has also been the recent development of a new hotel for the use by the oil rig workers and other business passengers and airport related business. The hotel is a temporary structure run by Nightel, a locally based niche business, there will be a permanent structure built in the next five years once demand for the facility has been confirmed.

The airport faces competition for flights from East Midlands Airport (70 mi (110 km)), Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield (28 mi (45 km)) which opened in 2005 and Leeds Bradford International Airport (74 mi (119 km)); all of these airports offer a substantially wider range of scheduled flights than Humberside Airport. 336,649 passengers were handled during 2009, a 21.3% reduction since 2008, making the airport the 28th busiest airport in the UK.

The airport has a very high amount of general aviation activity, with 5 resident flying clubs and organisations, this is due to the airport having some of the lowest landing and handling fees of its kind. It is a major operating base for helicopters flying to North Sea gas platforms, and is in fact the second busiest heliport in the UK, behind Aberdeen Airport in Scotland.

Humberside International has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P739) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction.
